Wine Relief: The first cross-blog auction?

crossblogauction_hughredose_350.jpgHugh McLeod, of gapingvoid fame, and Tim Atkin, of virtual wine, have come up with my favourite fundraising idea of all times: A cross-blog auction for one of Hugh’s cartoons and a selection of wines from Tim’s cellar. Cool cartoon and nice booze, how can one go wrong?

If your pockets permit, go have a look at the wine selection and make your bid. Last time I checked, they were up to £300, and we’re still nearly a week away from closing date!

Otherwise, if your pockets aren’t so deep, why not buy a Charlie & Lola book or a red nose instead? It’s all in the spirit of Comic Relief!

  2. Hi there Canadian Girl, love your site! Jason from Virtual Wine here. Just letting your readers know that but we’re now up to £350, which is still fantastics value for these great prizes. So do your bit for Wine Relief and Red Nose Day and get your vote in this week! Have a great day! Jason

  3. Thanks Jason, so pleased this is working out well!

    You know I love the UK for charity events – there aren’t as many as in Canada (or the US, I assume), but they’re well thought out, they’re funny and they’re enticing, as opposed to 24 hour telethons where they highjack the airwaves and show local “talent” howling their favourite song into a cheap microphone!

    Good luck and I’ll post again on Friday to cover all the cool fundraising events of the week!
